    Your simple approach to life is yet to fail you; whenever you are in contention for a prize or promotion, you fight fairly and energetically. Whether you win or lose, you have never had anything to hide. So, why now are you to be found with those who make false promises and draw you into murky situations? You’re out of your depth here—retrace your steps while you still can.

  • 2017

    This year your career and public image take precedence, giving you very little private time (perfect for the typically energetic and ambitious Aries). You also find yourself thinking deeply about your career trajectory, and carefully considering every move. It’s similar to sailing in the ocean: the wind and currents are strong, but you find that exhilarating.

    While you continue to stay in control with life throwing surprises at you, there will be time to ponder about the future in May and June. Your idea of the future goes no further than next year, but this time you are thinking about where you will be at the end of the decade, or even further. You have never been like this before, but then you have never faced the choice that you do this summer either. It isn’t an external crisis; this is entirely personal, and involves taking a deliberately ignored path which has always been open to you. You now realise that if you must go down that road, it should be sooner rather than later.

    Your personal relationships seem more settled than they were in 2015. There is plenty of contact between Venus and Mars (the lovers’ planets) but it seems that your partner is taking most of the initiatives and you are a little slow to respond. Maybe it is because your attention is elsewhere. There is an important point at the end of May — an ultimatum or a stand-off, almost — where you are questioned about your commitment. All this is part of the big internal debate that begins this summer. The questions will not be easy to answer but it’s encouraging to note that as 2016 ends, Venus and Mars are closer than they have been all year.

    Your career prospects look positive and your main concern is to keep it all under control. The best phase is between September and November; October could take you higher than you ever dreamed. Finances improve after a shaky start in May, but December is spectacular.
